AFSCME Local 60 - Municipal & School District Employees of Dane County


Employees shouldn’t have to risk their health to do their jobs. Four out of 10 private-sector workers come to work sick – or don’t get paid. The picture is noticeably different for state and local government workers, where union membership is stronger. Nine out of 10 workers in state and local government receive paid sick leave and, of those who belong to a union, it’s nearly everyone – 97 percent.


Pregnancy should not cost women their paychecks. But that's exactly what happened to UPS delivery driver Peggy Young when she became pregnant in 2006.


President Obama's willingness to act on immigration while Congress dithers and delays is admirable. Read President Saunders' Huffington Post article on it here.


We know that money can be a big obstacle when it comes to higher education. That’s why AFSCME provides scholarships to help members and their families reach their educational goals.


Welcome to the official website of AFSCME Local 60. We are municipal and school district employees working in Dane county.  

You are apart of a diverse, powerful organization fueled by its members.

Local 60 is just that – Local. We are working with you here on the ground in Dane county.

Walt Jackson, Clerical Madison City Hall VP Steward was nominated and unanimously approved to fill in for the remaining term of our Secretary position that Lori Kief has resigned from. 

Leadership has never shied away from Walt since early days of high school and college student government, GLBT activists and non profits groups such as ACTUP, Queer Nation, Outreach-Madison’s GLBT Community Center, Fair Wisconsin, AIDS Network, and various United Methodist and United Church of Christ local, state and national entities. 

Walt is employed by the City of Madison Police Department as their Master Scheduler, Walt works on various work groups such as Chair of and member of the Chief’s Civilian’s Advisory Council, Awards Nominations and civilian goal setting.  Recently for Local 60, Walt has served on Bargaining, Handbook, Stewards, and Strategic Planning committees.  Battling adversity for and with those dealing with numerous health issues such as cancer, he is a tireless advocate for those friends and family members dealing with complex institutional government programs and institutions. 

In his free time, Walt and his married Canadian husband Dennis live on the family farm in the Town of Dunn with their trusty 4 legged companion Max!
